Subject: CD covers?
Hey folks,
I'm looking for the CD covers for these free DSBDs from December 17,18,19 / 2004. If anybody knows where I can find them or has them and can e-mail me it would be much appreciated. And no they aren't at anymore.

PLF is the GD the way it should have been. With lots of great musicians, carefully chosen for skill, lots of variety in songs and setlists, lots of great transitions, you know. (Except for Phil's voice which is admittedly atrocious)

anyway this show fucking kicks ass. The second set alone is just beautiful. A wonderful St. Stephen for the ages, great 11, Mind-Melting Dark Star, and the first set has some wonderful tunes, particularly The Dolphins > The Stranger. I love all of it.

The electric fiddle player, however he/she is, is amazing. So much love. :)

Subject: interesting choice of backup vocalists....
Chosen to make Phil sound good in comparison? They thoroughly butchered "Imagine"....

Looks like everyone rated this show 5 stars...really?? Am I the only one left on this site who hasn't drank the koolaid?

I love Phil & all, and I understand that it's his gig & he can do whatever the hell he wants, but the truth is what it is, which is this: vocally Phil cannot carry a tune. If you need proof listen to "And We Bid You Goodnight"--literally painful to listen to.

Subject: great run
all three nights are terrific - seen a few P+F shows but not impressed. This is different, the line up is hugely improved without Warren - who is great musician but not a good fit, these three nights are definitely ones to catch.

Subject: St. Stephen>The Eleven
No Surprise on the Stars-

Just wanted to pen a few lines in appreciation of the transitory jam between St. Stephen and The Eleven...a sick show at a sick venue

Thanks Phil for keepin' the city so funky-

See everyone across the bay on May 15th...

Subject: The best unbroken chain ever?
Wow! This is hands down the best Phil show I've heard so far! I've heard quite a few Unbroken Chains and this one is just exactly perfect. (except for the butt-rock guitar solo at the end) Also, a great Box of Rain which I might of also said was the best I ever heard, except for the out-of-tune vocal harmonies at the end. Phil finally starts singing pretty good, and now his back-up singers can't hang with him? Never thought I'd say that! A thoroughly enjoyable show from start to finish. Awesome "Stranger," "Imagine," and a totally rocking "St. Stephen." That is awesome that they are playing "Stranger." That's my favorite Pigpen song. This is a five-star show for sure... the flawless Unbroken Chain easily qualifies it for five. As far as I know, no other Unbroken Chain comes close.

Subject: St. Stephen will remain??
Hate to be someone who looks a gift horse in the mouth--especially when the horse is such a tasty show with awesome sound quality but there is a big problem on this one. The St. Stephen is in total mono. This happens right at the track marker which starts the song and returns to luscious stereo at the next track. This seems like an oversight that happened somewhere as the nice Phil people were giving this to the commmunity at large. I wonder if someone who knows them might be able to contact them concerning a reseed of just St. Stephen in stereo. It would be oh so beautious. Great show anyways but that switch to mono will always be jarring--rescue us Phil!!!!

Subject: More Please
This is the first Phil show that I have downloaded and it is a smoker. Great grooves, high energy; makes you want to get up and shake it. Keep them coming, please...
Reviewer: chrisrobinson - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 28, 2005
Subject: oh man
this one here's really somethin'. Even if your one of those who can't deal with the lack of jerry in the mix as far as anything that isn't live is concerned, really give this one a listen. And if you find yourself giving up, take a stroll over to golden road and the stranger in the first set and maybe rethink it over. Sound quality is excellent, performance is beautiful.

P.S. Retter, don't you s@#$ my @#@ that i left with you or your flippin' rabbit season man.

They nailed this night. The Stranger was otherworldly.

So was Unbroken. So was everything.

Why has no one spoken up?

The Circle of Life. Spoken through song.
